Model : EL84TT MKII (2017+)
The EL84TT is an authentic, high-end integrated tube amplifier operating in Class A Push Pull Triode -- a pocket-sized reference unit, that's not afraid to challenge high-end triode pre/power tube amps combo. It features our S.E.A 2nd Gen Driver Design that sounds like a SET kind of amplifier, but with the control and bass of a conventional push pull amplifier.
It is used by tube connoisseurs and sound professionals as a point of reference and comparison.
2017 MSRP : $3,500 USD

MK2 : On our latest offering, we transform the original award-winning design to a mature and even better state, thanks to our R&D team and their ongoing effort to refine the sound and better hard-wares. After almost a decade of usage of the perfect transformers and parts, we are able to evolve it above the already best statues. Here are the further improvements over the "original" circuitry wise. On the hardware and sound tuning list above, it already scored the best sound/cost ratio.
An advanced regulating stage for power supply - heavily inflated our cost, but that's the only way to beat our previous dark quiet background and our infamous quiet operations, it also enhance the life of tubes expectancy
Improved power supply design and grounding network throughout the circuitry, seeing more ECAPS than previously? They are there for reasons! And they are all high grade, high temperature, high rating Japanese quality ECAPS
Better gain and boost than previously - more speakers will be easier driven and going louder
Like our original EL84TT prototype, there is only one set of input for the purest signal transfer - it goes directly to volume/pre-amp stage. The original idea of the EL84TT is to pursuit the best possible sound, instead of to fulfill the convenience of lazy audiophiles
Since we have used and know every piece of parts we will be using on the circuit, all the useless spots and parts will be obsoleted for cleanest channeling and lower the possibility in picking up noise.
New layout allows made as being integrated design, or a pure power amp (with less gain)
Reconfigured from standard Class A PP-Triode Mode to PP-Ultra Linear Mode for doubling the power to 10W Class A (Triode mode will be an option for triode sound die-hard fans - specific when ordering)
Further transformers upgrades are possible, even upgrade the spec to a 7189 tube amp with even more power!
6Moons by Frederic Beudot
"a very balanced amplifier with a detailed transparent mid-range that never shouted, with a rich weighty bass, a lively non-flashy treble without any kind of aggression and above all a dynamic and saturated sound that spoke to the heart perhaps a little more than the brain which is how I ultimately like my music spiced."
Enjoythemusic.com by Rick Becker
"A very linear unit with impressive focus plus deep and defined soundscape."
